Many people today are looking for hope but often the search comes up empty. The Bible tells us there is an everlasting hope found in the Lord Jesus Christ and He is able and willing to save you from your sins. Over 2000 years ago, the Lord Jesus came into this world sent by God to redeem you. In 2023 the Gospel is still being preached proclaiming Jesus as the Saviour for sinners.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation 

John 5:2-16Now there is in Jerusalem, at the sheepgate, a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches.In these lay a multitude of sick, blind, lame, withered, [awaiting the moving of the water.For an angel descended at a certain season in the pool and troubled the water. Whoever therefore first went in after the troubling of the water became well, whatever disease he laboured under.]But there was a certain man there who had been suffering under his infirmity thirty and eight years.Jesus seeing this [man] lying [there], and knowing that he was [in that state] now a great length of time, says to him, Wouldest thou become well?

The infirm [man] answered him, Sir, I have not a man, in order, when the water has been troubled, to cast me into the pool; but while I am coming another descends before me.Jesus says to him, Arise, take up thy couch and walk.And immediately the man became well, and took up his couch and walked: and on that day was sabbath.10 The Jews therefore said to the healed [man], It is sabbath, it is not permitted thee to take up thy couch.11 He answered them, He that made me well, *he* said to me, Take up thy couch and walk.12 They asked him [therefore], Who is the man who said to thee, Take up thy couch and walk?

13 But he that had been healed knew not who it was, for Jesus had slidden away, there being a crowd in the place.14 After these things Jesus finds him in the temple, and said to him, Behold, thou art become well: sin no more, that something worse do not happen to thee.15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.16 And for this the Jews persecuted Jesus [and sought to kill him], because he had done these things on sabbath.”

Romans 5:6-9for we being still without strength, in [the] due time Christ has died for [the] ungodly.For scarcely for [the] just [man] will one die, for perhaps for [the] good [man] some one might also dare to die;but God commends *his* love to us, in that, we being still sinners, Christ has died for us.Much rather therefore, having been now justified in [the power of] his blood, we shall be saved by him from wrath.”

2 Corinthians 5:2121 Him who knew not sin he has made sin for us, that *we* might become God’s righteousness in him.”

1 Peter 3:1818 for Christ indeed has once suffered for sins, [the] just for [the] unjust, that he might bring us to God”
